On Friday, June 28, the United States Supreme Court announced they will hear DACA arguments when the Court reconvenes in the fall of 2019. Earlier this month, the Court denied a request by the Trump administration for the court to quickly hear oral arguments to end DACA, which the Trump administration has been prevented from ending DACA over the last year by a series of lower court rulings. Oral arguments will be held in the fall and a decision from the Court is expected in early 2020 during the 2020 presidential campaigns. 

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was launched during the Obama administration to stop the deportation of  Dreamers, 700,000 young undocumented immigrants who were unknowingly and illegally brought to the United States as infants. After the lower court legal challenges to ending DACA, no new applications are being accepted but the Department of Homeland Security is processing renewals for immigrants already in the program and have approved more than 373,000 renewal requests since 2017.
